3 Big data security analytics techniques

Pioneer New Media Technologies has unveiled the first combination CD/DVD recordable drive for the PC at the Comdex exhibition in Las Vegas.

The drive reads and writes in four formats: DVD-R, CD-R, DVD-RW and CD-RW, has up to 4.7GB capacity per DVD side and records on DVD-R at twice the normal speed.

Andy Parsons, senior VP of product development and technical support said that: "interchangeability between recorders and players is the most important attribute any recordable DVD format can offer," and that the driving force behind both DVD-R and DVD-RW was compatibility with standard DVD playback systems.

The new unit, which has been designed for digital video editing and archiving in particular, will begin shipping to the OEM market in Q1 2001. Pricing has not been announced yet. ®
